["Inner" Vention]   Setting... good...Emotions... in...Motion...SADNESS


I often feel all alone...
I am NOT
The emotion "sadness" is a normal experience and it is very important to allow it to happen! Suppressing will not only cause stress to the mind but will also disrupt our bodies systems.
Webster' s Defenition
a : affected with or expressive of grief or unhappiness : downcast
b (1) : causing or associated with grief or unhappiness : depressing  sad news  (2) : worthless 

Disappointments, death, feeling helpless and Sadness happens! Who wants to allow sadness into our lives?  Sadness is...Hopefully...a passageway to better times!  We need to learn...and... educate others that allowing emotions, including sadness, are normal. Like most of you, I see no happy in the times I feel sad. The ONLY " good"  I see is the relief a good cry can bring and the HOPE that happier times are soon to come. Anthony and I both realize how important it is to find a quiet safe place to experience our emotions. Having someone to share our emotions with has really helped us.
Writing helps!
Story time 📚 
Recently, on one of my emotional release days... 
I often write out my emotions. I had just completed a sadness journal and just experienced a good cry. Another emotion...ANGER...came rushing in. 😡 just then... before I could process this new emotion...a loud noise shook me from my thoughts...a poor delivery person came to my door. I went to see what had happened and I could not open the door. They not only potentially broke something inside the package but lodged the 📦 so I could no even open the door. Unfortunately for him... he was still sitting in his truck... maybe it was not a safe place for HIM... but  I felt so much better after writing and getting to address the current situation. I know what you are thinking....so did I then have to deal with emotions of regret? Not for very long! It's all about BALANCE...and I will be working on that for the rest of my life.....
I try to focus on my BLESSINGS
 In the past, most of us have learned to keep emotions to ourselves in fear of someone judging us. As I mentioned earlier, it is important to know your audience when sharing. I am not saying that an emotion should be made public or shared with just anyone...but... 
lately... I have seen some really cool things happening on social media. We always here about the awful news... but...many people have been opening up more about there emotions and loses and I have seen some "real healing" come from this. Friends and family from all over the world 🌎 are offering ENCOURAGEMENT, SUPPORT & LOVE ❤️ 
A Hope of ☀️ is always WELCOME 

🙏It's the little things.... we all want to know we are LOVED❤️

💥 Sadness can also lead to depression if it lasts longer than you feel it should or you cannot quite put your finger on "why you are sad"? Please never hesitate to seek professional medical help!

A Passageway to HOPE...a Pitbull's Story of Rescuing a HUMAN

A  Passageway to HOPE...a Pitbull's Story of Rescuing a HUMAN
Helping Pops
A 🎁 of...... HOPE
Hoper Marie (AKA Hope) was rescued by Yavapai Humane Society in May 2012 from a Los Angeles kill shelter. She was 11 months old, lived with a homeless person and both were hit by an automobile. Hope desperately needed hip surgery and a forever home. A noble group of amazing people paid to bring her to Prescott, Az. where she received hip surgery and was waiting for someone special to take her home.
Hoper Marie

Our son, who also had a near death experience, was recovering from a TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury.) This incident changed or son’s life forever. His plans to return to work and finish his college degree were stalled; crowds caused panic attacks; seizures and migraines became commonplace. 
Adding to our family's anguish, our 9-year old family pit bull, Rocky, had recently went to dog heaven and we had no intention of ever bringing another animal into our home! We all were still in mourning and with our son's injury, it was a difficult few years!  Little did we know, our son had been regularly visiting our local humane society and he had not quite found what he was looking for. On one such visit, he spoke of walking past Hope's kennel. He took notice and stopped to look at her as she wagged her tail and sat perfectly still. He hesitated as he wrestled with his feelings for Rocky and decided to leave.

He could not get this adorable angel out of his thoughts! He thought about her name. "Hope." It was hope that was getting him through his ordeal. And like him, Hope was recovering from an injury.  He rushed back to Hope’s kennel and stood frozen in time.  Pondering, a lizard suddenly ran by.  Hope ran playfully after it just as Rocky would do. Anthony immediately texted his family that he was bringing HOPE home, stating "She's perfect; we can go on long walks and rehabilitate together." He found his “Hope” and a lifelong bond was instantly developed.
Anthony & Hope

He brought her home and they were partners on their road to recovery for 15 months. They went on slow short walks together and a lot of therapeutic drives on the beautiful off road trails of our city. During this time of recovery, Hope became our son’s service animal. Just when we thought both of them were ready to begin life again, our son acquired bacterial meningitis due to his head  injury. Along with another near death...several other health issues occurred that could have easily taken our son's life....again! HOPE is the actual RESCUER of our son… as she notified us 3 crucial LIFESAVING times when we he had to be rushed to the emergency room. 

⏩ Fast forward to...NOW
Hope’s hip and knee were never quite the same even with the first rescue surgery!  She began limping and was in obvious pain. We knew another surgery was inevitable. It was time to give back to this little ANGEL. Another human angel 😇, our son’s human gal, paid for Hope’s second surgery! Is are family full of angels  😇 or WHAT?.. Hope can now walk and run again and is so happy to be by her best friend’s side!  Hope is still crazy about our son and when he comes into a room, she runs to his side in adoring submission. Our son has also bounced back and recovering more every day. Words will never express what Hoper Marie means to my son and our family. She is an angel sent to us in our time of need.
Chilin with Grandma
I have told Hope many tines  that she is officially relieved of her duties to  enjoy her “golden years.” Of course she does not listen; true 😇Guardian Angels 😇never do… HOPE continues to make sure our son is taken care of first!
I would like to personally and publically thank God and all of those involved in Hope’s & our son’s “Second Chance “

"Inner" Vention... Setting Good Emotions... In Motion...Part 1: SELF-LOVE

"Inner" Vention... Setting Good Emotions... In Motion...Part 1: SELF-LOVE
“Inner” Vention
Setting Good Emotions In Motion
By Anthony & Cheryl Luttrull

If love is stronger you will know it immediately because in general, your life holds a measure of inner well-being, self-assurance, confidence, and peace that - should your life be ruled by fear – are all feelings or inner ways of being with which you will not be tremendously well acquainted.
Gabriella Kortsch, Ph.D.

Love is NATURAL…Fear is Learned
Part 1: SELF LOVE

Self-Love = Self Confidence + Self Esteem

Unrealistic… PERFECT… life on SOCIAL MEDIA = Unrealistic Expectations = Emotional Problems = Disrupted Body Systems
High Achievers… pursuing… PERFECTION = Unrealistic Expectations = Emotional Problems = Disrupted Body Systems
Our bodies are wired so that our health is linked to our thoughts, emotions and attitude.
Approximately 75-98% of sicknesses and diseases we acquire come from our personal lifestyle!

Love-based emotions: love, joy, faith, trust, inner strength, confidence, belief, happiness, caring, sharing, forgiveness, openness, passion, freedom, harmony, honesty, beauty, compassion, self-love, self-appreciation, respect, acceptance, and peace.
We all prefer LOVE based emotions because FEAR based emotions need a lot more tender care. If we are honest… everyone will deal with these emotions sometime in their life. The cool thing is that we can continually improve our mind, body and spirit! 
*We all were made to LOVE*
…Speaking of “LOVE”…
Having someone to love does not make one have Self Love…  
We teach others how to “LOVE US” by how well we love ourselves!
Self-Love = Self Confidence + Self Esteem
Let’s chat a little about FEAR…
Fear-based emotions: fear, anger, disgust, worry, anxiety, frustration, resentment, ill-will, blame, sadness, jealousy, negativity, and stress.
Essential Oils facilitate the processing and release of emotions! They stimulate the part of the brain that deals with emotion ad memory and help bring balance, happiness and fulfillment.
Try RELEASE to… Lighten your spirit…Get rid of daily emotional baggage… a hurtful comment… negative thought…troubling news
 Often… even thinking about “change” produces FEAR!


OIL- O- SCOPE

Valor: Hug of Courage & Strength
Bergamot: Helps with fear of not being good enough
Grapefruit: Detox of self-hate and weight
Rosemary: Stimulates Confidence
Frankincense: Improves attitude

***        This is a big oil list...Speak with your health care provider and RESEARCH the oils to see which one(s) you want to start with. We explore using one oil at a time for a targeted health issue. The cool thing is that if the oil we picked does not work on the specific concern we are addressing… the oil will have other therapeutic properties that WILL help in another health concern!!!! A WIN WIN!

If you are reading this blog…We are somehow connected! Thank you for stopping by! I write most of our blogs… I do make my poor husband, children and animals suffer by listening (I usually have to creatively corner them and read out loud) I do my best to get their thoughts, suggestions and approval. We use this blog to share some of our secrets on how WE make things work for us! We do our best to live in the PRESENT…We sometimes look back on our life and say…I wonder what would have happened if… but we quickly remind ourselves that we can only change the NOW!

A Gift of GRACE...The Fab 5...Family's... 5 Pit Bulls ...How Pit Bulls Rescued a Family!

A Gift of GRACE...The Fab 5...Family's... 5 Pit Bulls ...How Pit Bulls Rescued a Family!



*These series of posts are about how 5 pit bulls changed our family and how it all started with an English Red Nose Pitbull named ROCKY!

A GIFT OF GRACE...
By Cheryl Luttrull

Grace Marie is an English Red Nose Pit Bull...just like our family dog, Rocky.  Grace was adopted at a shelter in Phoenix and was originally rescued  from a puppy mill.  My kids were told that she had kennel cough but after they brought  Grace home they discovered that she had distemper!  She was a very sick little girl.  Grace  was receiving at-home IV treatments from her parents and I often helped with massage and percussion on her chest. which helped mobilize secretions in her lungs. One veterinarian advised us to enjoy her numbered days, which we refused to accept. Jake & Robyn quickly found a doctor that was willing to help get Grace through this disease! Grace has always been a therapy animal...She came and stayed with us to help ease the pain  when we lost our family dog Rocky for weeks. Her parents needed her back so we reluctantly took her home.  . Grace  played a huge role in helping an autistic child  feel comfortable around dogs and the family even adopted their very own bully breed! Rocky fortunately was around Grace a lot growing up so he helped instill some great attributes to an already sweet perfect girl! 
Rocky & Grace

 In 2015, Jake and Robyn entered a pet contest  to help bring awareness to the ill thoughts and misunderstandings of the pit bull breed. Grace not only won… but was on the cover of the Anthem, Arizona Magazine including a full story of her life! She had her very own photo shoot and won a lot of gifts. We all even attended a Diamond Back game in her honor with special seating. She still has to hide from the PAPARAZZI so do not expect too many local appearances! 

                        
READ the full story here: 



Grace is currently in her golden years and is busy helping train animals and all of the bully breeds that have came into our families lives!

Grace is my daughter’s emotional support dog and greets her at the door every day with a smile that only a pit bull can bring! 

Truly…. Grace Walked In To Our Lives!

Just wait until the next story… Yes we have another famous “Pit Bull,” in our blessed family!

White Sands National Monument....A Road Trip to Remember

White Sands National Monument....A Road Trip to Remember
Come along with us…..

White Sands National Monument is one of our favorite spots! We chose tent site #4  which was about a 1 ½ mile hike….luckily… it had rained a lot a few days prior and the gypsum was not as hard as walking in sand. It feels so nice between your toes! Anthony did not have a relaxing hike out … He would not let me carry anything except my backpack and I had to fuss about THAT!
